How to Sell Your Las Vegas Home When You Live in a Bad Neighborhood

 

Like any big city, Las Vegas has its fair share of undesirable neighborhoods. Whether it’s high crime rates, poorly rated schools or a lack of employment, everyone has an opinion of what a “bad neighborhood” looks like. So what if you currently own a home in one of these neighborhoods – and it requires some work? Are there any buyers willing to take this on? 

 

Location is always a top priority when it comes to real estate. If you don’t live in a safe neighborhood with strong schools and access to work, shopping and entertainment, your buyer pool is going to shrink. That’s not to say that you won’t find a buyer, but you’re definitely going to have a harder time. 

 

Below are some of our best tips for selling your house in a bad neighborhood. If you are unsuccessful, or you don’t want to go through the work and negotiations to get your home sold, contact We Buy Any Vegas House for a free cash offer. We WILL buy your home! 

 

Market to First Time Homebuyers 

 

First-time buyers are just starting out, so they often have less money saved up and no equity from a previous home. Because their options are more limited, they’re often willing to consider a less desirable neighborhood. 

 

Also, young home buyers often anticipate their first property being a starter home, so the location might not matter like it will for someone buying their forever home. And, because first-time buyers are often young and without kids, they won’t be as concerned with the school district. 

 

Enhance Your Curb Appeal 

 

If your home looks great on the outside, it can bring up the neighborhood and drive in more interest. Most people don’t mind having the best looking house on the block! 

 

Take some time to spruce up your exterior. Clean up weeds, trim the trees and bushes, mow the lawn, plant some flowers and power wash the driveway. These tasks just require your effort – they cost very little money. 

 

Add Value to Your Home 

 

While you don’t want to do a complete home makeover, there are a few ways you can add value to your home without spending a lot of money. This shows prospective buyers what makes your home unique. 

 

Some of the things you can do include painting the walls a neutral color, cleaning the carpets, moving out your personal belongings and purchasing some fresh plants. The goal is to make your home feel warm and inviting. 

 

Consider Cash Buyers in Las Vegas 

 

If you don’t want to put any more money into your home, your best option is to sell it for cash. Cash investors use their own money to buy homes so they don’t need financing from the bank. This eliminates much of the stress of a traditional home sale, including an inspection, appraisal and showings.
